live tonight from gaza city as we have for the last two nights. a night in which there has been a lot of talk about a potential cease-fire or cooling-off period but if anything, what we have witnessed in the last several hours here in gaza city is a heating up. we saw some rockets being fired from gaza city and a series of very loud explosions throughout the city in a number of locations around the office building that we are broadcasting from tonight. i want to show you what occurred about an hour or so ago, about five blocks away from basically very close to a media center where we were earlier. this is what we saw. we were not recording sound so you're not going to hear sound, until the end of this. but a very loud blast, as you see right there, basically all of us ducked down in the office. we thought that was the end of it. neal, our cameraman, panned over and then a series of more explosions. turns out this was a number of government buildings that is what is said to have been hit. it's not clear if those are secondary explosions or if those are multiple rockets going into the b
city and israel as well. we'll have reports on both sides of the border, and i want to warn you, what you are about to see is very disturbing. this is what we witnessed from our own eyes from our vantage point here of what we saw in the last 24 hours here in gaza city and israel. take a look. day seven. talk of a cease-fire or time-out never materializes and the fire rages on. rockets continued to be fired from gaza, and massive explosions rock gaza city. >> i think it's pretty clear we're moving in the direction of -- i can hear shattering glass out there right now. the building just shook. of course, i was looking at the camera, so i didn't see where the blast took place. anybody see it? to the north of the building here. despite talk of cease-fire, it appears that the guns are still firing. >> cnn's ben wedeman during a live report. we rushed to the scene of the blast moments later. i'm told this house, this villa, belongs to a very wealthy man who is a member of fatah, who is not here. a wealthy banker and some local people here believe maybe somebody else was living in the house
, this was the reaction in gaza city. people took to the streets, massive traffic and crowds as people celebrated. gazans celebrated what they saw as a victory for hamas and gaza. question is, will all of this hold? will all of these people once again take cover in their homes? will the celebrations end and the fear return? for u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton and mohammed morsi who pushed for a cease fire, the agreement calls for discussion of a number of issues, including freedom of movement for palestinians in and out of gaza. and the agreement not to target the area in gaza, and to halt rocket fire into israel. again, a discussion, nothing is a done deal. over the next hour we'll look at the negotiations still happening now. we'll also hear from the spokeswoman for the israeli defense forces and from the leader of hamas. plus our reporters on the ground and a whole lot more. we begin with a look at what has transpired over just the last 24 hours. it is remarkable there was a cease-fire this hour, when you consider how this wednesday started off. take a look. add midday, no sign of a truce yet
coming from gaza city. if you watch closely, you can see the fires in the upper part of the screen and we've seen much more. so keep watching. this is the apparent aftermath of explosions that happened just a few minutes ago. israel has been launching air strikes for a week now as hamas militants fire rocketses into the country. egypt has president is leading the talks. earlier today, he said a truce could be hours away. that didn't happen. the attacks continue now on both sides of the border. earlier today in jerusalem, air sirens, ho mass militants say they fired a rocket at the holy city just as the u.n. secretary general was arriving there for truce talks. it's but the second time hamas targeted jerusalem during this conflict. it landed outside the city. no word of any injuries. but the israeli military reports an 18-year-old soldier did die in a rocket attack today in the south of israel. he is the first israeli service member reported killed in a week of fighting. and the israelis are now firing back with air strikes. officials say this attack on a car in gaza city killed a militant
of the agreement, this was the reaction in gaza city. >> people took to the streets. massive traffic and crowds. they celebrated what they saw as a victory for hamas and for gaza. the question is will all of this hold or will this cheering end in rockets crisscrossing the boardern once again? will people take cover in their homes, will the celebrations ends and the fear return? for u.s. secretary of state hilary clinton and president morsi, the hope is that the deal will stick. it calls for freedom of movement for palestinians in and out of gaza and a commitment not to target militants and commitment from militant groups in gaza, to halt rocket fire into israel. again, a discussion nothing is a done deal. over the next hour, we'll look at negotiations still happening now, we'll also hear from the spokeswoman for the israeli defense forces and the leader much hamas. plus, a reporter on the ground and whole lot more. we begin with a look at what has transpired over the last 24 hours, and it's remarkable there is a cease-fire at this hour when you consider how this wednesday started off. take a lo

the militant group. each side is also mourning tonight in gaza city a funeral for a man killed in israeli air strike just before the cease-fire took effect. and the israeli military reporting a soldier died today after a rocket attack that also happened before the cease-fire. the second israeli soldier killed in the conflict. conor powell joins us live in jerusalem. connor, are things almost back to normal there in israel? >> well, greg, there are still a lot of tension. there is still a lot of fear here in israel. we are now entering the second day of this cease-fire and with each passing hour there really does seem to be the belief that this cease-fire may actually take hold so, yes, things are beginning to return to normal. shops and markets are beginning it reopen. particularly in southern israel which was hit very very hard. kids are expected to return to school over the next few days. and life is beginning to return to normal. there were even kids out playing for the first time outside after 8 days of violence and taking cover because of incoming rockets. so life is beginning to return

comprehensive coverage of this crisis in gaza. fred pleitgen is in ashkelon, ben wedemans in gaza city. ben wedeman, good morning, set the scene for me. >> reporter: yes, brooke, it was a noisezy night and we saw intense bombardment just behind where i'm standing. that was proceeded by increasing sort of mounting reports that a cease-fire was about to be announced or a period of calm. but it appears that there were problems within the israeli government that prime minister benjamin netanyahu and his foreign minister lieberman didn't see eye to eye with the defense minister who was leaning towards accepting this draft proposal sent by hamas via the egyptian government. so once it was clear that those efforts had sort of run into a brick wall, we saw an intensification of israeli air strikes and of course rocket fire out of gaza as well. one of the rockets, rather, one of the air strikes hit very close to the hotel where many journalists are staying right on the coast right next to the gaza city beach. now most recently within the last hour the house of a senior adviser to hamas, prime minist

blast in israel since 2004, the last one being on a bus in the southern israeli city of bare shea but near gaza. if this is connected to the current conflicted, there's no confirmation at this point that it is, but this would show a change in tactics from the current tactics being used which is rocket launches from gaza into israel. this comes as secretary of state hillary clinton is here trying to negotiate a ceasefire. she and other senior diplomats from around the world, u.n. secretary ban ki moon as well, trying to come to an agreement. this occurs just when people were thinking a ceasefire could be in the cards. so if this is connected, this could potentially make a ceasefire negotiation more difficult, but also we're being told police are hunting for a suspect. currently, though, no arrests have been made and no one has claimed credit for the attack. >> chapman bell for us live in tel aviv. thanks so much. >>> we go now to the mayor of jerusalem. secretary of state hillary clinton spent time in jerusalem. mr. mayor, thank you for joining us. how confident are you that this c
>>> good evening. breaking news tonight. you're looking live at gaza city, a city on the edge. any hope of a quick cease-fire between israel and hamas appears to have gone. off another day of deadly attacks from both sides. president obama has dispatched secretary of state hillary clinton for closed door meetings. she stood side by side with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu tonight. >> in the days ahead, the united states will work with our partners here in israel and across the region toward an outcome that bolsters security for the people of israel, improves conditions for the people of gaza and moves toward a comprehensive peace for all people of the region. >> secretary clinton sits down with palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas and with egyptian president mohammed morsi tomorrow. i want to bring in cnn's wolf blitzer, who is live for us in jerusalem tonight, and anderson cooper and ben wedeman, both in gaza city. wolf, let me start with you if i may. a very tense day with claim and counterclaim coming almost on an hourly basis. there was going to be a cease-f

at the pentagon city mall at arlington, virginia. she joins us now. stacey, some 200 stores in this mall, four levels? what have you been seeing? >> it's enormous. if you want to shop this is the place to do it. some of the anchor stores, larger retailers opened at midnight. the store in general opened at 5:00 this morning. i just got some numbers on the parking lot which usually can tell you some idea of how many people are here. it's about 15% full. that is as of 5:00 a.m. keep in mind, that's 5:00 a.m. and we also have a metro station within walking distance of the mall. so many people come here that way. people are steady filing in. and, i just got this, which is i've not seen black fridays before, this is a shopper bag that they are providing, a shopper relief bag to shoppers out here. they've got some really neat items, bottled water. they have hand sanitizer. there are smacks in here, candy and ships and a lot of coupons for the stores. so that's on top of the black friday deals they're already offering. these are available as supplies last. made me feel good because i haven't been able
'agata in gaza. >> reporter: city skyline was filled with smoke as israeli tanks fired shells followed by air strikes. when we drove to one neighborhood to take a closer look, another strike came in. the bomb landed less than a hundred yards from us. residents scrambled for safety. our next stop was the hospital. there had been a number of explosions here in gaza this afternoon with casualties brought here to the hospital. we've heard reports that at least ten people have been killed in the last hour alone. they are all civilian, we're told, that's caused anger and outrage here in gaza city. hamas kept up its offensive too, firing more missiles into israel. and in the streets, militants shot dead six palestinians suspected of collaborating with israel one body was dragged through the street as people cheered. others packed up and fled as israeli warplanes dropped leaflets warning gazans to get out. hamas urged residents to ignore the warnings calling it psychological warfare. human rights activists said that despite the mounting casualties, hamas still has widespread support. >> i think if th
is in tel aviv where a bomb went off in the city. leland. >> i am setting the scene for you on my israeli answer to the pentagon. a city threw a bomb on to the bus or left one it is not a suicide bomber, but 10 people were injured. three of them very seriously wounded here in this attack. the two suspects on the list would be hamas or islamic jihad, both operating out of the gaza strip. hamas is peace talks and trying to figure out if a cease fire over israel with the rockets and the bombings on the other side going into the gaza strip . islamic jihad has a different agend a. they are backers in iran who are pushing for rocket fire against the gaz strip. we should have a shot up of this on our live view, you can actually see this bus that stopped. this harkens back to the days of the second intfada where you had bombing on the buses mainly suicide bombings. this doesn't appear to be that. but it is a mange failure for the israeli intelligence services in a critical time, whether it is going to derail the peace talks or not is yet to be scene. obviously the fact that secretary clinton is i
commission, could mean less money, and congressman king ensured that the city received more for counterterrorism. even though he will not have the top spot, he'll work with the new chair to continue to secure that. take a look at this, this is an 80-foot yacht burning off the miami coast. three people on board jumped off and had to be rescued by the coast guard. they were not hurt and the coast guard fired water canons to put out the boat. it's not own how it started. it's worth $950,000 to maybe a million dollars, maybe nor. passenger on a plane trying to land in kentucky after the pilot pulled up at the last minute to avoid slamming into another plane at cincinnati airport. everyone on board do see what was about to hand and relieved when he didn't land. what is alarming my mom and stepfather were flying into the airport last night on a small plane. mom, if you're watching, e-mail me and-- was she flying the plane. >> i'm not sure. >> alisyn: not sure what's happening on that plane but it's possible my mom was on it. e-mail me, mom. >> less' talk about what happened during
